Smashwords book reviews by MickySmit

  • Hershey's Wet Dream... on May 06, 2013

    If this is erotica then the Sydney Opera House is a McDonalds cheeseburger. I'm not sure I shall delve into Smashwords erotica again. I think I am traumatized. As well as the plot being completely nonsensical, the grammar is poor.
  • Hitler Did It on May 06, 2013

    As Christine Kaluaat said in her ***** five star review below (why did she give it just one star?), this is an imaginative collection with some real gems. The eponymous story is a ripper. Yes, Christine. This is a five star book!
  • The Hypochondriac’s Lament. on May 12, 2013

    An amusing little tale. I'm with Michael Carter. It could have been longer with a greater exploration of the angst and then the climax would be cleverer. Good writing style, though.
  • The Very End of the Affair on May 12, 2013

    This is a five star read. The title story is hilariously clever. Good work Martin Lindsay. The rest of the stories aren't really laugh out loud tales but ones that make you smile and feel good. Holly Bruce's story, "Tech Know" is scarily prescient. This is a quality e-book that deserves a decent audience.
  • Grey Nomads on June 11, 2014

    This story had potential. The subject matter is interesting and the relationship had possibilities. The story was marred by it flipping between first and third person, the use of Americanisms (this is set in Australia) and some poor grammar ('gotten'). With a good edit and a proof-read it would be quite a good tale. It was a little slow to start.
  • Bad Kitty: A Story of Convenient Sex on June 11, 2014

    Mr Winchester is more generous than I am. If you can't get the first word right, what right to you have to write? This is garbage. Nicholas Lansky must be a friend, eh?
  • Psychic Toll Call on June 11, 2014

    Neatly written. Good grammar. Nice suspense. Shame that the ending was a little flat (but neat twist with the bucks). This story is worth expanding into something a little more substantive.
  • Valentine's Day on June 11, 2014

    I'm very taken with this book. The stories are sexy and erotic but not dirty and crass. Indeed, this is a genuinely erotic book from beginning to end. Even the lesbian sex scenes are quite a turn on. Great work on this anthology David Vernon, I hope you will do more.
  • Fight or Flight on Nov. 13, 2014

    I've only just started to venture into YA material — mainly because I want to write some — and thus I thought that an eclectic collection of tales would be a good place to start. I was quite blown away by the depth and breadth of these stories. Just because they are for Young Adults doesn't take away any of their edge. This is an awesome collection of great stories. The variety of themes is amazing from friendship and war to religion and relationships. Fantastic.
